Mother's Day 2009

My Mother and Father are traveling home today from my sister, Nancy's, college graduation in Boise, ID. That is the only reason I won't get to talk to her today, but I will call her tomorrow evening when they return home.

This was our Mother's Day gift to her this year.

It was tatted using DMC white Cordonnet thread, size 80. The pattern is from "Tatted Handkerchiefs".

Because I do not live close to my mother I need to rely on the US Postal Service to get my card to her. As I do every year I went to the card store early and searched until I found the perfect one. Some years I have to search different stores until I find just the right one. But this year I found the card at the first store I checked. It was perfect because it said my feelings just as if I'd written them myself, but when I cried right there in the store, then I knew for sure.

This time finding the card was the easy part. Making the gift not so easy. But really only because tatting in size 80 thread is a struggle for me, the patterns in this book are diagrammed very nicely. (no written directions)
I'm sure my mother will enjoy it and I know she will understand the hours of love that went into making it special ......... just for her.

To My Mother
Happy Mother's Day, Mommsetta!
I love you with all of my heart! ~ Bonnie

An extra special greeting ......
Happy Mother's Day, Anita!
I hope your day is filled with love and that you spend it making memories.
I know your boys love you.

To all Mothers everywhere
I wish you each a "HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!"

Happy Tatting, Happy Life,
